Book Description

Meet the Crochet Donut Buddies, the cutest collectible toys for kids. Just like real doughnuts, it's impossible to stop at just one!

Ring toys are well established in the early years market as excellent for developing grip and gross motor skills. And what kid (or adult for that matter) doesn't love a doughnut or three?! Author Rachel Zain, founder of Oodles of Crochet, developed these patterns for her non-verbal autistic son. Using easy crochet techniques and standard materials, you too can make a menagerie of toys that will delight kids of all ages and abilities.

Learn all the techniques for the basic crochet doughnut, and then discover over 50 ways to transform your doughnut into adorable animals and other cute characters. The book includes patterns for farm animals, safari animals, sea creatures, seasonal and holiday designs and more. Each doughnut measures around 5in (12.5 cm) diameter, making them perfect for little hands to grip, and you can add squeakers, rattles, crinkles and bells to create extra-special sensory toys. Alternatively you can play with hook size and yarn gauge to supersize your doughnuts into pillows or shrink them into keychains.

All the stitches needed to make the doughnuts are included, as well as some fun ideas for different games you can play with your donut characters, including storytelling, role play, counting and sorting games and more, these sweet crochet toys will deliver hours of fun for little ones.
